Making Sociology Matter: Challenges Facing South Carolina Colleges and Universities
Annual Meeting of the South Carolina Sociological Association
February 21 – 22, 2014
Charleston, South Carolina
The South Carolina Sociological Association (SCSA) invites sociologists and practitioners from around the state and region to join us at our annual meeting in Charleston, SC on February 21 and 22, 2014. There are three main ways to participate in this exciting event:
- We invite panelists/presenters to speak to the theme of sociological challenges facing South Carolina Colleges and Universities (e.g. reductions in funding and other resources, changes to financial aid rules and regulations, program assessment and assuredness of learning, program review, student preparedness and achievement, etc.). We will have a number of panels devoted to these topics. Any individual experience in these matters and who is interested in speaking to these concerns is invited to join us.
- Scholars whose research focuses on the sociology of the South (and South Carolina) are invited to present completed papers or works in progress related to their work.
- Sociology graduate students (regardless of area of specialization) are encouraged to submit their best paper. Any topic and methodological approach will be considered. Top submissions will be invited to present at the meeting with a cash prize for the winner (who must be present to win).
The meeting will be held at the Town and Country Inn & Suites in Charleston, SC. Rooms are $109/night plus tax. To make a reservation, call 1-800-334-6660, or visit http://www.thetownandcountryinn.com/. Reservation deadline is February 1, 2014.
The meeting will begin in evening of Friday, February 21, with a social gathering and dinner (off-site). The formal program starts early Saturday, February 22, and will last until mid-afternoon. The SCSA business meeting concludes the festivities. Registration for the conference is $35 (payable on-site) and includes Saturday lunch.
